Har de har har....
didn't even start the last one. Mingshey posted about Perseus bootlegs, I made what I thought was nothing more than a mildly amusing response, and Jeff started his self-described rant in response to that.
And getting back to languages, I certainly don't think I'm going to be the last language lover. I'm starting to hate Greek sometimes. My problem is that I have the lousiest memory. Too many drugs in college, I guess. The noun declensions were bad enough; they say there are only three declensions, but it seems you have to memorize dozens of patterns to make them actually work. (Although I've been reading Pharr recently, and I must admit that his explanations of the declensions do
make the declension variations seem less random.) And the verbs... argh, I don't even want to think about the all the verb patterns right now. I don't know if I will ever get past the grunt work memorization stage to the point where I will actually enjoy reading the stuff.
I, Lex Llama, super genius, will one day rule this planet! And then you'll rue the day you messed with me, you damned dirty apes!
